Who are WatchDOGS? Fathers, grandfathers, step-fathers, uncles, and other father figures who volunteer to serve at least one day a year in a variety of school activities as assigned by the school principal or other administrator.

Currently both Oviatt and Lakewood endorse this program and regularly have WatchDogs in their halls.
